We have a fantastic opportunity for Paramedics, Physiotherapists, Pharmacists, Midwives and Nurses to join our school immunisation teams to make a difference to child health in this location. VUK provide Fluenz, HPV, Men ACWY and DTP to schools across Sandwell.
The service will primarily be delivered on-site in schools for children in primary and secondary schools in the county, but due to the pandemic situation, we will also be delivering these immunisations in community clinic settings.
This will be on a bank contract with an immediate start available to provide school aged immunisations including HPV and nasal flu immunisations across Sandwell. The hours of work will be from 0830 until the end of the school day, or the immunisation session. You must be able to arrive on time and stay until needed.
We are seeking qualified Paramedics, Nurses, Midwives, Physiotherapists and Pharmacists for school and clinic sessions to start immediately. You just need to provide us with your availability, and there is the opportunity to work up to 5 days per week to suit you. As a result of the type of work we do, a flexible approach to working is required. In return, we are offering a very competitive hourly rate, a friendly and supportive working environment.
